Preference will be given to organizations who meet these criteria:
Training, Coaching and Consulting Grants – Coaching, training and consulting grants are awarded to community or organizational leaders who are interested in implementing the Empowered Communities Model in a community where they live, work or worship. These grants are for up to 12 coaching/training/consulting sessions over a one-year period of time and are valued at $2,500.
Implementation Funds – Implementation funds are available to organizations or associations who have completed the Equipping Phase of the Empowered Communities Model and who are ready to launch a development effort. Implementation funds can be used to pay resident stipends, purchase food for community gatherings and other supplies needed for community building efforts. Request can be made for up to $2,500 per project per year.
In 2020, our focus will be on strengthening schools through parent and community engagement. If your organization or association is effectively engaging parents and members of the broader school community in strengthening efforts, we encourage you to apply.
While our focus in 2020 is on school strengthening, we will also be funding other worthwhile community building projects in many other categories, including family strengthening, youth development, safety projects, beautification and senior support. If your project is bringing neighbors together to work toward their dreams for their community, we would love to hear about it, and when appropriate offer our support.
